Yes - the likes of the Audi E-Tron and Tesla Model X are capable of towing most caravans but they're expensive. You might find a plug-in hybrid like a Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV a good compromise.

Cheap to run if you can charge at home and don't do many miles. Masses of space. Significantly improved for 2019.
Exceptionally strong performance, can seat up to seven people, Falcon Wing doors have real wow-factor.
Wonderfully classy inside, roomier than most (not all) rivals, very civilised on the road with an 248 mile range.
